...the historic Pigeon Forge First Church



You can contribute to our church’s ministry online- without ever having to leave your home. The following link, https://holston-reg.brtapp.com/ChurchOffering, has been set up for you to be able to donate directly to our church. Once you click on the link, you will fill out your name, address, phone, and email. Then, you will select your district (Smoky Mountain) from a drop down menu, and then select our church (First UMC- Pigeon Forge). Finally, you select the amount you would like to give and hit the blue button. This will take you to a screen where you can enter your debit/credit card information. The whole process takes about 1 minute. This option will go away when we resume meeting again, but for now, it is another option for you.



We need some volunteers as we strive to keep our Sanctuary open for worship on Sundays. Each week we will need 5 persons to do tasks that are required of us until this pandemic passes.

Here are the needs:

    • One person to take attendance each Sunday
    • One person to take the temperature of each person entering. We will use a touchless thermometer.
    • Two people to serve on a Clean Team to make sure high touch areas are disinfected prior to worship
    • One person to serve as  a“Monitor” to help people to find the designated seats in the Sanctuary and to direct people to overflow seating in the Fellowship Hall if all places are taken in the Sanctuary.

These are simple tasks, but required tasks if we are going to have in-person worship in our Sanctuary. Twenty volunteers would be enough so that no one would ever need to serve more than once per month, so would you consider helping out? If you can help, call the church office (453-8333) or email the church (pffirstumc@gmail.com) and we will get you on the schedule.

Thank you for your help in doing these tasks.

Seating is limited, but overflow seating is available if needed so join us for worship if you can. Facemasks are suggested for those who have not been vaccinated and social distancing is strongly encouraged. Guests will have their temperatures taken upon entering and are asked to sit in designated seats and asked not to sit with anyone of another household. If you can live with those limitations, please join us. Dress is casual and the fellowship is great.

Check this out!


As we look for ways to better engage young adults in worship, we are glad to announce The Forge Community Church on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM in our Fellowship Hall. Worship is a bit different for what is customary for most of us- but will be in the style of a "Coffee House" that emphasizes fellowship, conversation and interaction with the message of the day. It is specifically targeted at young adults- but anyone of any age is welcomed!

Weekly Bible Study

Pastor’s Bible Study  meets on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 p.m.  At present, we are working through a "Bible Survey" of one book per week and will continue the New Testament this spring.  The Letters of Paul to the Churhces are foundational for Christian theology and Christian Living and we will begin in Romans.  A Bible Survey is not an in depth study of a book, but an overview of the book in which we examine its central message, author, place in the Bible and in history. Join us. Studies are in Room 110, they last approximately one hour and the fellowship is great.

Our study schedule looks like this:

May 25  Galatians

June 1 - Ephesians

June 8- Philippians
